Josh said he’s actually looking “forward to seeing what slogan he chooses to embroider on his campaign hat,” reports AP.

Kanye’s wife is ready to support her husband with his future goals of becoming the President of the United States. “She thinks Kanye is what the country needs,” an insider told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “He was not joking when he said he’s going to run in 2020, and Kim is behind him 110%. She thought his acceptance speech was ‘epic.’” If Kim thought Kanye’s speech was epic, wait until she hears the album he’s planning on recording in preparation for his presidential campaign in 2020.
Kanye To Record New Album For Presidential Campaign
Even though 2020 is five years from now, Kanye is starting to plan out his campaign, starting with the music. “Kanye’s seriously considering campaigning right now and one of the ways he’s thinking about doing it is to get his message to the people through his music,” a source EXCLUSIVELY told HollywoodLife.com. “He’d love to re-write the U.S. Constitution and make it rhyme and flow so that people could dance to the music, and also retain the words and the meaning of the constitution — just like they know all the words to any one of his hit songs.” We all know Kanye is serious about running for president, so it wouldn’t be surprising if the rapper hit the studio immediately after the VMAs.
